The local chicken shop in Black Forest is Goody’s Chicken and Seafood which is located in a small shopping complex on busy South Road. Some people might say that all chicken shops are the same. When it comes to the menu, that’s fairly true as there is a selection of chicken, burgers, seafood and salads to choose from. Having said that, a roast chicken can be too small, too dry, too bland or have terrible seasoning.
This chicken shop is modern, neat and well presented. The yellow and red colour scheme is consistent with their logo, and there are handful of seats both inside and out for customer to enjoy their meal. The store has a nice wide frontage and there is plenty of natural light flowing through.
For lunch, I had the Chicken Hot Pack which was ready less than 10 minutes after ordering. The chicken was well marinated, tender and succulent, and the chicken skin was nice and crispy. The roast potatoes were crispy on the outside with a soft and fluffy centre. The gravy had a nice thick consistency and prevented the dish from being too dry. There was bit of seasoning on the chicken that well refined and tasty.
The staff were friendly and the service was fast and efficient. The atmosphere was relaxed and the pricing was reasonable. The cost of the Chicken Hot Pack was $10.90 which was reasonable considering the size and quality of the meal.
One of the better chicken shops in Adelaide.
